Wasted! The Story of Food Waste Screening, Panel Discussion, and Sustainable Soirée

Wasted! The Story of Food Waste

Join us for a very special screening of the thought-provoking documentary, Wasted! The Story of Food Waste, followed by a panel discussion and reception, on Sunday, April 22nd. 

Through the eyes of well-known chefs like Anthony Bourdain, Dan Barber, Massimo Bottura, Mario Batali, and Danny Bowien, audiences will see how the world's most influential chefs make the most out of every kind of food, transforming what most people consider scraps into incredible dishes that create a more secure food system. WASTED! exposes the many factors contributing to food waste, how it's directly affecting climate change, and how each of us can make small changes (all of them delicious) to solve one of the greatest problems of the 21st Century.


Sharing a communal desire to practice environmentally responsible gastronomics, LA's top culinary influences have partnered with Chefs Collaborative and L.A. Kitchen to discuss the issue of food waste. After the film, engage with a discussion panel featuring Chefs Neal Fraser of Redbird, Nyesha Arrington of NATIVE, and Michael Cimarusti of Providence.

Neal Fraser is chef and owner of multiple restaurant concepts in Los Angeles, including Redbird, Vibiana, and Fritzi Coop. Fraser touts an impressive resume that includes a degree from the Culinary Institute of America and an honor roll of kitchen credits such as Wolfgang Pucks Eureka and Spago, Checkers Hotel under Thomas Keller, Joachim Splichals Pinot Bistro, Hans Rockenwagners Rox, and the highly revered Boxer. Currently, he and his business partner/wife Amy Knoll Fraser own and operate critically acclaimed Redbird; high-volume special events and performing arts venue Vibiana; fast-casual Fritzi Coop at both Arts District Brewing Company and in the Farmers Market at the Grove. His restaurant has received many accolades including a coveted spot on the Los Angeles Times Gold List by Jonathan Gold and Los Angeles Magazines Best New Restaurants list.

Chef and partner of NATIVE in Santa Monica, Nyesha Arrington, was named a "Rising Star" by Brad Johnson, restaurant critic of Angeleno. In 2012, Arrington was recognized by Zagat in their "30 Under 30" list. Nyesha has also appeared on popular reality cooking shows, including Bravo TV's Top Chef, Esquire Network's Knife Fight, and Food Network's series Chef Hunter. We as chefs can really choose local, bio-intensive and regenerative and really make a difference, says Nyesha.
 
At his much acclaimed Los Angeles restaurant, Providence, Co-owner and Chef Michael Cimarusti has created elegant and contemporary seafood-centric cuisine for over a decade. The chef and the restaurant have earned national accolades that include several James Beard Award nominations and two highly coveted Michelin stars. He combines his extensive knowledge and appreciation for seafood, with an advocacy for sustainable fishing practices that is evident in each dish he creates. Seafood has inspired me in a personal way from the very start, he says. It is my duty to staunchly support its conservation and best practices, and its my privilege to have the opportunity to showcase it on a nightly basis.

The discussion will be followed by a reception featuring local restaurants devoted to combating waste through their menu choices, including Preux and Proper, Huntington Hospitality by Bon Appétit Management Company, and more.

Movie rated TV-MA for language. Please note that admission to The Huntington is a separate cost, but not required for those who wish to attend the event. Day passes to The Huntington may be purchased at the front entrance.

Demystifying Dim Sum with Chefs Susan Feniger and Kajsa Alger

Dim Sum.jpeg

Dim sum is a one-of-a-kind brunch experience originating from the Canton province of China that is now enjoyed by enthusiasts around the world. It may seem intimidating at first, involving fast-paced carts filled with mysterious food parcels and no written menu; however, the experience is well worth braving the unknown.

Family and friends gather to share baskets of food small plates-style, while socializing and drinking hot tea. Steamed dumplings, fluffy buns filled with barbecued pork, fried turnip cakes, savory congee, sweet sesame rice balls, stuffed sticky rice wrapped in lotus leaf, and delicate coconut sponge cakes are just a small sampling of the foods carted up and down dining halls by dim sum’s mobile hawkers.

 

Join chefs Susan Feniger and Kajsa Alger of Blue Window for an introduction to dim sum. Guests will learn more about the history of tea and yum cha, watch chefs Susan and Kajsa create several dim sum plates, taste an assortment of traditional dim sum dishes and teas, and even try their hand at dumpling folding.

By the end of the event, guests will gain a new understanding of a quintessential part of Chinese food culture. Invite family and friends to join in on this learning experience for an afternoon of fun, adventure, and delicious food!

 

Location: Haaga Hall

Date: Saturday January 27, 2018

Time:

Program 2 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.

Cocktails, dim sum, and chef meet-and-greet in Garden Court 3:30 p.m. - 5 p.m.
